Hi All,
At 10 am this morning Delia found what we decided must be a Tennessee Warbler in our backyard sitting behind tangled branches and furiously preening after a bath in Butyl Creek.
Because of bright greenness of the back and the whiteness of the underside which ruled out Orange-crowned, and a light eye-stripe, we called it a Tenessee, but our sighting was frustratingly short and we got no photos.
We then commenced a 3 hour vigil in hopes the bird would return, with two false starts involving Am. Goldfinch and a Yellow-rumped Warbler that weren't trying to get photographed, they just wanted a bath.
The bird to our surprise did return at 1 pm and I got only one shot which is poor in quality, but I think it shows enough to rule out anything but a male Tennessee, although of course,  we are hoping for experts will risk a migraine to review the shot, which is at:
